Phil Mickelson was playing poorly. Okay fine, he was awful at The Memorial tournament hosted by Jack Nicklaus. Then he decides to withdraw.
He did not cite injury ( like Tiger Woods has done in the past as a reason to WD) as his reason. Instead he admitted he was playing poorly.
Poor sportsmanship ? Absolutely. Disappointed in Phil? Certainly.
Yet unlike Tiger, Mickelson at least was completely honest about the reason. I am not calling Woods a liar. How can anyone really know how someone else is feeling? All we knows is Tiger was seen driving himself home immediately after withdrawing due to a leg injury.
Not an excuse for Mickelson’s lame actions , but at least we don’t have to be guessing with this guy like we do with Mr. Woods.
